Tyra Banks Funky, Party Updo
Tyra Banks' eye-catching updo is a long-haired look that says you -- and your hair -- are ready to party. Get the look: 1. Apply texturing lotion and blow dry hair using a paddle brush ... volume is not as important with this style as making sure your hair is straight, shiny and has some texture to maintain an updo. 2. Once hair is dry, use a straightening iron to smooth out 2-inch sections of hair, all over your head. 3. Pull hair, very tightly, into a ponytail and secure it on top of your head. 4. Take individual sections of your ponytail, apply pomade to them, and roll them into a loop that protrudes from the ponytail and secure them in place with pins. Repeat until all but one section of the ponytail has been looped ... leave that tail of the 'tail hanging off to the side, and secure the, ahem, structure with a generous amount of hairspray.

1. Work a defrizzing styling cream or protective oil, like Moroccan oil, throughout hair and blow dry straight on a low setting with a round brush. (Make sure you lift your roots up as you blow dry so you get some oomph.) Don't forget to straighten your bangs, which should be feather cut.

3. Rub your fingers in some styling wax and finger comb your waves.
4. Finish the look with hairspray and shine spray (flip hair upside-down and spray the curls beneath for extra sexiness).

Wrap 1-inch sections of hair around a small 1-inch curling iron. (Brush each section first for smooth results.) 5.
